Light

The light in my scamp 16' by the rear bed won't turn on, all the other lights work fine and I've replaced the bulb still nothing. Any ideas on a easy fix? Thanks!

John

Is it a 12 volt light under one of the overhead bins? if so check the wire connections inside the overhead bin.

It is on the back side of the fiberglass panel for the side dinette facing towards the bed in the rear.

I just fixed the wiring to the same Light in my 1999 Scamp 16 ft. The wires from the fixture splice to the 12 volt feed wires under the side dinette bench seat . I removed the drawer in the bench seat and was able to get at the splice which was bad . It is a long reach through the drawer opening to the splice . so with the help of my wife I fed the wires (splices) into the storage area under the bed where they are more accessible , repaired same and returned the splices to the area under the bench seat where they are safe and out of the way. Hope this helps but ,I am not sure if all Scamps are wired identically at the factory.

On my light up in that location there is actually a piece of fiberglass stuck inside the cabinet at the end that covers all the wires to that light as well as on my trailer the 12V plug and Cable TV connections. Its a false wall - its not attached just pushed in tight. Its possible you have a loose connection behind it as well. You could also put a voltage meter onto the light socket to see if you are getting any power if you are then it may just be the bulb socket needs some adjustment in order to get a better contact with the bulb.
